Double Pepper Jalapeno Poppers

Cheryl Campagna


These are a really great movie night alternative to the same old chips and dip blahs. Easy to make and can be made ahead and then popped into the oven. The Peperonchini give it a little extra POW factor

How to Make Double Pepper Jalapeno Poppers


  1. Preheat Oven to 375

    Cut Peperonchini into small pieces, removing stems and hard end pieces. DO NOT remove seeds!
  2. Put all ingredients, except bacon and Jalapeno peppers, in a bowl. Mix until smooth and no clumps remain in cream cheese. You can adjust the amount of garlic and Tabasco to taste. Add a splash of Peperonchini juice from jar - careful not to add TOO MUCH!
  3. If you have very sensitive skin, wear gloves to prepare Jalapeno.
    Slice Jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise. For entertaining, leave the stems on for a little decorative touch!
    For very mild poppers, remove all seeds and ribs. For a hotter popper, leave about half the rib, for super hot leave ribs and a few seeds in tact.
  4. Fill a sandwich bag with cream cheese mixture. Cut a hole in bottom corner of the bag. Fill Jalapeno with cream cheese mixture (Can also be done with a spoon, but using the bag is easier and less messy)
  5. Cut bacon strips in half. Wrap a half strip around each popper and secure with a toothpick. Place on cookie sheet, evenly spaced apart.
  6. Bake in preheated oven approx 30 - 40 minutes until bacon is browned.
